If Kai the Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker doesn’t ring a bell, then you haven’t been keeping up on the news. Drifter/surfer Kai became a hero when he saved innocent bystanders by taking down a crazy dude who was raving about being Jesus, whipping a hatchet out of his backpack and in his own words “smash, smash, s-mash”-ing the attacker with it. The interview conducted by KMPH News shortly after the event became a massive hit on Youtube, not only due to Kai’s heroic actions but also because he seems like a decent guy with a positive outlook on life.
Since the interview hit the internet, Kai’s gained a huge fan following which apparently includes Jimmy Kimmel. Stopping by Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kai sort of talked about his life now that he’s recognized on the street and why he was carrying a hatchet in the first place.
